ChatGPT can be used by ‘bad guys’ should be regulated
OpenAI’s chief technology officer, the creator of ChatGPT, said the AI tool should be regulated because it could be used by “bad guys”.
Mira Murati said in an interview with Time magazine that the company did not expect her “baby” to be greeted with such enthusiasm when it was released.
She added that ChatGPT can “invent truth”, like other AI-powered tools based on language models.
But its popularity has raised some ethical concerns, Murati said, adding that such tools “could be misused or by the bad guys”, raising questions about how it should be managed. it on a global scale.
“How do you manage the use of AI in a way that aligns with human values?”
When asked if companies like OpenAI or the government should be responsible for regulating the tool, Murati said:
“It’s important for OpenAI and companies like ours to bring this into public awareness in a controlled and responsible manner.”
However, she stressed that the company will need all the help it can get, including regulators, governments and everyone else. “It’s not too early” to regulate it, she added. OpenAI did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
In January, ChatGPT CEO Sam Altman said in an interview with SeriousVC that “generated text is something we all need to adapt to.”
“We’ve adapted the computer and changed what we tested in math class, I guess. It’s a more extreme version of that, no doubt, but the benefits of it’s also more extreme,” Altman added.
Chatbot AI has garnered great interest since its public launch on November 30, even stoking fears that it will eventually replace the jobs of many.
One man used it, along with another AI tool for creating graphics, to write children’s books. The researchers went one step further and ran ChatGPT through all three sections of the US medical licensing exam. They said it went “comfortably”.
